EASTER BUNNY S'MORES



INGREDIENTS AND DIRECTIONS:

1. Reduce 1 sleeve graham crackers to crumbs.
2. Layer 2/3 of the crumbs in a 1 quart jar.
3. Place 8 marshmallow bunny peeps standing up, facing out around the inside of the jar.
4. Press them up against the glass, but don't squash them.
5. Carefully spoon remaining crumbs in the center of the jar to support the bunnies, pressing down to keep it snug.
6. On top of this pour 1-1/4 cup Easter M&M's.
7. Spoon 1/3 cup brown sugar into center of M&M's, gently pressing with a spoon.
My changes: I did M&M's first, then Peeps, then put combined brown sugar and graham cracker crumbs in baggie. I didn't like how the crumbs made a mess in the jar.

Attach a gift tag giving the following instructions:

1. Empty the jar contents into a bowl. Snip the bunnies into bits with kitchen sheers or cut up with a knife. Return the bunny bits to the mixture. Mix well.
2. Melt 1/2 cup butter; add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients, mixing well. Pat into a greased 9" square pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
(Makes 9 to 12 bars.)

*Option - leave bunnies whole; combine remaining ingredients and place the bunnies on top; then bake as directed.

*This gift jar may be created to suit any holiday for which marshmallow candies are available.

I just made 3 of these, and will be making more. My 4yo and 2 yo helped crumble and the crackers and put everything in, so cute! I am using 2 for pre-school teachers and one for a hostess gift for a bridal shower the end of March.

I made a couple of jars of these yesterday. I couldn't make the graham crackers look cute, so I went and bought some Teddy Grahams. That is so cute. May not cook up as cute, but I'm giving that a try.

This is soooo cute, thanks so much for sharing!

omg these are so darn cute!!

Melissa said...

Works for any holiday - just change out the peeps and the color of the M&Ms. I've done Christmas ones using the Snowmen peeps. :)

Lesia said...

This is really cute. However, I wouldn't want to make the recipient has to really do any work. You could slip half sheets of graham crackers in the middle of the marshmallow peeps, and chocolate kisses. Then just microwave for smores.

Jamie said...
